The Gringrich who stole South Carolina

As you probably know, Newt Gingrich got the most votes in the South Carolina primaries. What you may not know is that the Grinch who stole South Carolina, along with Rick Santorum, both Catholics, were called on by a group of Catholic Bishops to stop their race baiting rhetoric and demonizing the poor. We'll also take a look at the Florida primaries where Newt promised Floridians that he will work to start a moon colony if elected President. Is the current crop of Presidential candidates all the GOP has to offer the American people?

Healthcare reform is back in the news again with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius making her media rounds to tout improvements. Lets talk about health care and discuss some of the SC Occupy teach ins.

Last but not least, Gregg will update us on his legal case regarding the assault on his freedom of speech which resulted in him being ticketed for having a protest sign deemed to large. Let see, political candidates can purchase billboards but apparently hand held poster boards are deemed to large?

South Carolina GOP Primary, Drug War and Ron Paul

This week, Daisy and Gregg will be discussing the 2012 South Carolina primary, and particularly the pivotal role of Ron Paul in the presidential race. We will also be discussing racism and the drug war, and how the local (Greenville area) news media has totally ignored this issue, even when (supposedly) covering the controversial political views of Dr Paul. The deck is stacked, and we will be pointing this out and analyzing it further.

Jeff Sharlet,Occupy Writers & Martin Luther King Jr.

This week on The Daisy Deadhead Show, Jeff Sharlet will be our special guest. Sharlet (sounds like Charlotte) is a New York Times best selling author and founder of Occupy Writers. He'll be discussing his books, his website, and most importantly, Occupy Writers.

We will also reflect on the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr who created the Poor People's Campaign along with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. After the assasination of Dr.King, The SCLC and other leaders decided to continue the Poor Peoples campaign in King’s honor. On May 12, 1968, demonstrators began a two-week protest in Washington, D.C. and that same month thousands of poor people of all races set up a shantytown known as “Resurrection City.” The city was closed down in mid-June and the economic bill of rights was never passed.
